Reviewed on 6/27/2010. On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a white head. Aroma of caramel malt and bitter hops. Flavor of honey sweetness, caramel malt, and a bitter hops finish. Overall I found this beer to be a solid pale ale, easy drinking.

A middle of the road in my opinion, which still always score higher than everage. Does not sting the tongue or have any real bitter bite to it. Low level of hoppiness. A bit on the orange side with little carbonation. This one is not an intimidating Pale Ale--for those new to the style, not a bad one to start with.

An Amber color pale ale that has a thin head and has moderate carbonation with decent retention, and very good lacing. The smell had a fruitiness to it, but was very weak and could not smell anything else. The taste is of citrus fruits along with some hops and sweet malts. The mouthfeel is a light to medium feel that is a little chalky and is a drinkable beer. This is a beer that I did not care for and will most likely not buy again.

Clear, light amber with a thin, white head and medium-low carbonation. Butterscotch caramel nose with little to no hop aroma. Round, English mildly-fruity hop flavor with a nice balanced malt sweetness. Mild, relatively clean bitter hop finish with a soft mouthfeel.
